Healthy Almond Cookie Dough Cake With Chocolate Frosting and Berriesđź

18 cm cake
50 min

In this cake you will find everything you could wish for: an almond cookie dough base, creamy chocolate frosting, and fresh fruit to make it complete. It started out as a ''save whatever there is in the fridge and pantry'' idea, and believe me, this is how the best recipes are born. I tried to make it as healthy as possible, maybe if it is not sweet enough for you, just add more sugar. If you want to make it gluten-free, feel free to use gluten-free flour instead of spelled wheat. And if you’re vegan, use chia or flaxseed eggs and vegan, dairy-free cream cheese.
